From lobbying governments to providing collective bargaining and legal support, CAUT actively advances the social and economic interests of its members. CAUT offers courses, workshops and conferences, and investigates threats to academic freedom. The national office undertakes extensive research, and publishes reports, newsletters, books and a monthly newspaper. CAUT liaises with Canada's media and works in national and international coalitions dedicated to the welfare of academic staff and students.
CAUT actively promotes public post-secondary education that meets the needs of students and the public. We press for public funding and policies to ensure our institutions are accessible and to safeguard the freedom of our members to teach and conduct research unrestricted by commercial or other special interests.
CAUT advances equity and human rights within our profession. We fight for fair working conditions, compensation and benefits that foster quality teaching and innovative research. CAUT works for collegial institutional governance that is publicly accountable and gives the academic community its proper voice.
